Success Stories - Caveman Strong

By: Cornwall Crossfit  09-12-2011

Our success is dependent on the success of our members. Each week we will feature Crossfit members who have seen success through our program.

here’s a story I would like to share about health and hope. At one time, this woman thought that her health was what it was and nothing could be done to improve it to increase her quality of life. She didn’t smoke or do drugs, made healthy food choices and exercised at one time. Result [..]

I started my Caveman strong journey with Dan’s first foundations class in October 2010. I was at the heaviest I had ever been in my life and I needed a change. My life was upside down and my motivation was at it’s lowest. My sister is a crossfitter and she was hounding me to try [..]

Student’s take on Summer training. For a student the end of summer means one thing – BACK TO SCHOOL.  For myself I will be returning to the University of Guelph to finish my degree.  Doing so I will leave behind family, friends and “the cave”.  As excited as I am to be joining everyone at [..]

I met Tyler Touchette [..]

Check it out. __________ Hi Tyler, First week down 10lbs- this week not sure yet plan on continuing to weigh [..]

I’ve been a member at (Cornwall) Crossfit for almost a year now. When I started I weighed 216 lbs and was out of shape. Now I weigh 180 lbs and at 30yrs old am in the best shape of my life. Crossfit and the Paleo diet have helped me better myself not only physically but [..]

Every journey starts somewhere My name is Gerry L and I am a 58 year old custodian with the Catholic School Board. I started my fitness journey with Tyler about 5 weeks ago. Both my wife and daughter have been going to Crossfit for about a year now, but never once did I think of [..]
